Mohammed tells legal fraternity to respect human dignity

jfs_65_off_UAE_judgementforsaleHis Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has urged judges and prosecutors to administer justice with integrity and loyalty, to respect laws in Dubai and to value people, whether plaintiffs or defendants, considering human dignity and their rights as ‘red lines’ that should not be crossed or compromised because “our religion, Arab and human values don’t tolerate that”.

Shaikh Mohammed made this comment while swearing in two judges of the Cassation Court, six judges of the Appeals Court and 15 judges of the Primary Courts in Dubai at Zabeel Palace on Tuesday. Another four counsellors took the oath of office as chief public prosecutors in Dubai before Shaikh Mohammed.

Shaikh Mohammed  stressed that laws should be respected and implemented for all and that no one is above the law, regardless of his position and status.
